Score Cards and Measurement Tools

CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard A tool designed to help employers assess the extent to which they have implemented evidence-based interventions for health promotion in their worksites that are aimed at preventing heart disease, stroke, and related chronic conditions among their employees. Originally, the HSC assisted employers in identifying gaps in their health promotion programs and in prioritizing high-impact strategies across 12 topics: 1) organizational supports, 2) tobacco control, 3) nutrition, 4) physical activity, 5) weight management, 6) stress management, 7) depression, 8) high blood pressure, 9) high cholesterol, 10) diabetes, 11) signs and symptoms of heart attack and stroke, and 12) emergency response to heart attack and stroke. In 2013, in an effort to broaden the tool beyond the prevention of chronic disease, 4 modules were added: lactation support, occupational health and safety, vaccine-preventable diseases, and community resources and partnerships. The HSC differs from other worksite assessment tools in several ways: 1) it addresses multiple health topics focused on chronic disease prevention, immunizations, and occupational safety and health as well as the worksite's health culture, 2) the questions are weighted according to current evidence in the literature, and 3) this tool has been tested for its validity and reliability.
